Be Bright Be Seen! - 08/11/2019

< Back to the news

 November is 'Be Bright and Be Seen' month.


At this time of year, it’s important to Be Bright and Be Seen when you are out and about near roads.

BE BRIGHT – wear fluorescent or brightly coloured clothing when walking to and from school – it shows up well in daylight and at dusk.

REFLECTIVE – When it’s dark outside, wear reflective clothing to be seen in car headlights. Reflective vests, sashes or wristbands work well.

IMPROVE – improve your visibility with accessories, clip on reflectors, armbands and stickers added to your coat or bag are a great way to improve your visibility.

GREEN CROSS CODE – always choose routes and crossing places that are well lit and remember to use the Green Cross Code.

HEADLIGHTS – if you like to cycle, it’s the law to have clean and working headlights on your bike at night (white at the front, red at the back) as well as a rear reflector. It’s good to fit spoke reflectors too.
